Potential cost associated with a standard matter

For a straight forward sale or purchase the CJCH conveyancing fee starts from £425.00 (ex VAT). We offer fixed fee for this service as a basis, but reserve the right to quote for additional and non-standard matters.

Definition of a standard matter

A straight forward or standard matter refers to a standard freehold registered title. It is important to note though that variations to this require a variation of services to meet the needs of the transaction, such as a leasehold title, and unregistered title, land transfers etc.

  • All other matters which fall out of the above standard matter concept, will be quoted for accordingly

Potential extra associated costs (disbursements)

Disbursements are associated costs for the transaction, which will be paid out on your behalf in order to progress the matter (no VAT on disbursements). These could include (but are not limited to):

  • Land registration fee
  • Local search, environmental search and drainage search
  • Stamp duty (England); Land Transaction Tax (Wales)
  • Bank telegraphic transfer fee
  • Chaps transfer fee
  • Official copy documents

When will payments be required?

  • Once the client has instructed the firm to act on their behalf, an up-front fee of £300.00 (ex VAT) would be required on account to start proceedings

The balance:

  • For a purchase, funds to be paid and cleared (including stamp duty) before completion
  • For a sale, balance is deducted from proceeds on exchange and completion
